Prof. Alec Ryrie



Professor Alec Ryrie is currently Professor in the Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University. He is a historian of Protestant Christianity. His specialism is the history of England and Scotland in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, but I have interests in the emergence and development of Protestant and radical beliefs, identities and spiritualities more widely in that era and beyond. His recently published book Protestants: The Radicals Who Made the Modern World gives an overview of the history of Protestantism as a whole from Luther to the present. He is also one of the co-editors of the Journal of Ecclesiastical History.
